28. And it's also a spectrum...

There is a long line between confrontation and "oh we're just having a disagreement over the fact that I have the audacity to think that my life matters more than a confederate statue"

Ask questions.
Make them explain their rhetoric.
Just say "that's ridiculous" and move on.
Say if someone's behaving this way, then you can't associate with them

It's sad that we've reached a point where not accommodating racism and bigotry is seen the same as rash confrontation. And I think that's on us, not them.
